‘Global Frequency’ Drama Produced By Jerry Bruckheimer Set At Fox
Another top Warner Bros. TV producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, is taking on a DC Entertainment property for a drama project that has landed a pilot production commitment at Fox. Global Frequency is based on the graphic novel created by Warren Ellis, from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint. The adaptation will be penned by respected sci-fi writer, Farscape and Defiance creator Rockne S. O’Bannon. The show will chronicle the workings of The Global Frequency, a privately funded crime-fighting operation that uses worldwide crowd-sourcing to solve crimes the police cannot. Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Warren Ellis and O’Bannon will executive produce and KristieAnne Reed will co-executive produce for Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV.
Global Frequency is part of the expansion of WBTV-DC Entertainment’s TV portfolio that started last year, following the success of Arrowon the CW. There were four WBTV-DC pilots last season, all four went to series. Two of the three that have debuted, Fox’s Gotham and the CW’sThe Flash, are among the biggest hits of the fall and have already received full-season orders. There hasn’t been a decision yet on Constantine, on which O’Bannon is writing, and iZombie debuts in midseason.
This development season, Global Frequency is joining WBTV’s Supergirl,which has a series commitment at CBS, and Lucifer, also based on a Vertigo property, which has a put pilot commitment at Fox.
